I went camping about a week ago. Wanna see my setup?
Air mattresses, radio, and filet mignon. Yeah, we rough it.
I've been going here almost every year with my dad since elementary school. We usually go during the winter to avoid the bugs, but this summer weather turned out perfect.
FIRE! Flint and magnesium for this one. Matches are for losers.
^Decided to join is for dinner.^
After filling up the fire bucket in a nearby stream, we found a couple of these little guys swimming around inside. Freshwater trout I think? We threw them back in so they can grow up big and strong and feed the bears.
It's the prettiest stump in the whole forest. Caught it munching on a rock.
This is one of the best parts of our camping trips. After walking a quick trail (in complete darkness, of course), we reached an overlook with a beautiful view of the valley town below. In the picture above, you can see the glow from the town, a glaring full moon (that's the moon, not the sun), and the light trails of cars driving in the distance. And if you look very closely at the far left sky, you might make out the blinking signal of an orbiting satellite.
